 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays retooled their struggling bullpen on Monday, placing Jay Witasick on the 15-day disabled list and sending J.P. Howell to Triple-A Durham.
A day after giving up 20 hits for the second straight game to the New York Yankees, the Devil Rays recalled pitchers Jason Hammel and Juan Salas from Durham.
Witasick, a combined 1-0 with a 6.15 ERA in 31 appearances for Oakland and Tampa Bay, was placed on the DL retroactive to Sunday because of a right elbow strain. He allowed five runs in an inning on Saturday.
Salas opened the season in Tampa Bay's bullpen and made 15 appearances before being suspended for 50 games after becoming the first player this year to flunk a drug test under Major League Baseball's testing program. He had a 3.95 ERA and had 10 walks and 12 strikeouts in 13 2-3 innings. The right-hander was reinstated from the restricted list on July 3 and optioned to Durham.
The left-handed Howell is 1-4 with a 7.36 ERA in eight starts for the Devil Rays this season.
Hammel, who was 1-0 with a 5.82 ERA in 11 appearances, was optioned to Durham after making a spot-start Saturday at New York in the first game of a doubleheader.
